This is a very nice restaurant. The ambiance is definitely upscale and the menu offers a nice selection of items. We managed to get a table on a very busy evening, even though we did not have reservations. The service was excellent and the food very good to excellent. I tend to be a harsh rater compared to many others,... More

We had an early dinner here this past week and had a wonderful meal. Our server was very knowledgeable and attentive. Our dinner meals both had fresh seafood and they were outstanding. It is a place on the pricier side, however, the fresh food was worth it. Bread given with the meal was sparse, but otherwise, a marvelous experience.

food was delicious and the atmosphere warm and welcoming after a long travel day. Leave room for dessert - the warm gingerbread was divine.

Had an incredible dinner here. Service was excellent, and the food was amazing. Everything was fresh, and delicious. Had the Lobster, and others had pasta which were excellent. Would highly recommend this restaurant for a lovely night out to relax and enjoy the food and atmosphere. It is a bit more sophistocated than the other dining in Antigonish yet it... More

I went for a business lunch today. Got a great table. The service was very quick, competent and friendly. We all 5 ordered different things. Everyone was pleased. The only issue was that I ordered a Thai Vegetable & Steak Salad with peppers, carrot, diakon, cucumber, tomato, onion & greens tossed with a spicy dressing with cilantro, mint, basil, lime... More

This may not be big city fine dining, but it is better than most places in towns of this size. They have a varied, italian based menu which is creative for Antigonish. They delivered and the food was quite good A pleasant surprise.

The lobster was wonderful, and the scallops were great. We sat outside and enjoyed the scenery. The town is a nice size to walk through and window shop.

This restaurant is totally charming. The décor and setting is really lovely and is different than many of the Mom and Pop type restaurants you find in the Maritimes. However, my husband didn't realize he was ordering a pasta dish when he ordered his steak dish and I wasn't crazy about my veggie curry dish. I didn't care for the... More
